Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff at the controls
Michael Ignatieff, federal Liberal leader, speaks with crane instructor Avery Moodie at the Operating Engineers Training Institute of Ontario, while they stand outside the cab of a crane, discussing the training and skill required in operating such heavy machinery.
Ignatieff stopped at the Operating Engineers’ Oakville campus during his Working Families Tour to meet with members of the union and other industry stakeholders.
During a subsequent town hall, after a tour of the training facility, Ignatieff said he believes Canada has “jobs without workers and workers without jobs” and if he were elected his government would address this with improvements in education and training.
